I think the Ottawa Sun reported that Volchenkov would be a game day (Carolina) decision according to how he felt. So... just wait and see.

"We're hoping. He's a little better today, but we're going to have to wait until game time almost," said Murray. "It's been bothering him for a bit. If he can play we're going to play him. If he's going to aggravate him more, we're just going to have him wait."
